The main problem with the CafePress process (and that used by most
one-off printers) is that it's basically laser-printing to a shirt,
i.e. toner particles melted into the fibres. This can work very well
indeed, but is not going to be as good as silk-screen printing, which
becomes cost-effective at a few tens of shirts or so.
Of course, the other thing you're buying from CafePress is having
someone do all the ordering, packing and posting backend - not just
making sure you don't have a stock of maybe-saleable shirts.
